Report & Results: 10 Championships (Women/Juniors)


Hayley Simmonds, Adam Hartley and Henrietta Colborne were the main title winners on Saturday at Dorking in Surrey in the RTTC 10 mile time trial championships.


Riding a minute slower than she had during the week in a full race distance effort, Hayley added the 10 title to the 25, the 100 and the British championship. She was also part of the winning team from Areocoach with Victoria Smith (5th) and Lydia Gurley (9th).

Simmonds won the title by half a minute from Irish champion Anna Turvey with a legend of the time trialling world, Julia Shaw still showing her rivals what she can do with third.

Earlier in the day, Adam Hartley (Junior Men) and Henrietta Colborne (Junior Women) won their categories.

Hayley Simmonds: “I rode the course on Wednesday and did a full race effort (20.27) with race kit and went a minute faster but the conditions were good for that. It was warm, and no wind. Today though was a real hard slog to the turn and coming back, not having enough gears!”

“So it was a much slower day and I thought it was going to work out a minute slower.”


“It is a tough course and a different one to pace like you would something like the V718 where it’s even power out and back where this one is really hard, recover, really hard and recover and so on. And the wind polarised that with a head wind out so you had to dig deep on all the hills on the way out to get some recovery on the downhill sections while on the way back, you’re flying and trying to keep the power on as much as possible.”

“It has been a good year and it’s not over yet as I have around another two months to go yet even if I don’t get selected for the worlds as my last race will be the 23rd of October. Then two weeks after that I get married!”

Asked about her bike set up in the wind, Hayley explained “I used a 54 chain ring and didn’t want to go bigger than that because of the up hills on the way out into the wind. That was pretty much perfect with the 11 sprocket. I use the tri spoke on the front and disc on the back. If it had been even windier, then I would have changed the front wheel but the tri spoke was fine today.”

Finally, I asked Hayley to give us an insight into what her training is like to make her the champion she is. “I do a lot of long rides and am lucky now since I submitted my PHD in April and have been training full time on the road. Those long rides are mixed with intervals which vary from long steady ones right up to one minute ones. I do a complete mix really.”

“A couple of long rides a week, a couple of VO2 max sessions, couple of twenty minute sessions a week, and a mix of road and time trial bike as well. This week for example, I trained hard Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday then backed off Thursday and a couple of opener sessions on Friday.”

Final question, there has been talk of why Hayley didn’t go to the Olympics as the British champion and having been in America and ridden a few pro races, I asked how does she think she could have gone based on what she knows about the riders who competed there?

“I saw it on TV but never rode the course so don’t know what it was like but it looked windy. I’d like to think I would have finished top eight, maybe top 10. I know I would not have medalled. My aim though is to get to a level where I could medal in a world championship by the next Olympics which is where I’d like to go so there is plenty of motivation to target Tokyo!”

Anna Turvey: It was quite scary on the way out with cross winds which made me nervous. I rode as hard as I could. Generally , I have had a good season and I’m going better than I have ever gone so I am pleased with that. I’ll just need to keep working hard and get a bit stronger.”


“I have changed jobs so I’m at home rather than travelling to work so I am training more consistently and not tired from travelling so much which is one reason why I’m performing better this season.” Asked what courses she prefers, Anna says “any really. I’d never ridden the fast courses before this season but I have had a go at a few this season and enjoyed them because they are not technical.”

“I like all courses and am getting better technically so sporting courses are more interesting and easier because there are things to distract you from the pain!” Finally, asked about her ambitions, the Irish champion explained “I’m hoping to ride for Ireland. I did the Irish championships this year which was one of my goals along with breaking the Irish records for 10 and 25.”

“My hope now is ride some bigger competitions like the Europeans (Sept) or even the World Championships (Oct). Beyond that, I’d also like to get some opportunities on the track with the Irish team in the team pursuit.”

Julia Shaw: “I had a reasonable ride despite my training being interrupted like last year when I’ve had a problem with my breathing which is why I didn’t ride the 25. Today was alright though so I’m pleased to make the podium. It was a tough course and I got blown around a bit which I guess was the same for everyone. A couple of places it gusted and I sat up for a few seconds so that didn’t help me!”
